Tornadoes are arguably nature’s most violent storms.  Generated from powerful thunderstorms, tornadoes generally appear as rotating, funnel-shaped clouds extending from the cloud base to the ground.  With winds that can reach up to 300 miles per hour, tornadoes can cause massive destruction within seconds.  Damage paths can be in excess of one mile wide and fifty miles long.

Unlike hurricanes, which typically develop over water and occur mostly in coastal locations, tornadoes form over land, posing hazards and risks for all fifty states.  Additionally, tornadoes can develop so quickly that advance warning is not always possible.  While tornadoes are often visible, heavy rain or low-hanging clouds can obscure their funnel-like formation.  A cloud of debris, however, can usually indicate tornado location even if a funnel is not visible. 

Keep in mind that disasters can strike when you least expect them.  For additional tornado information visit the FEMA website at www.fema.gov.   SERVPRO of Northeast San Antonio is always prepared, to help make it "Like it never even happened."  Our team is always here to help our community.
